News on Shibboleth - July 2005
A pilot project is now well underway to establish a trust relationship among the universities subscribing to the HealthLibrary.ca. The idea is that individuals, who have a username and password for any of our Canadian Faculties of Medicine, can enter the library without requiring a separate HealthLibrary username or password and without re-entering the information once they are logged in at their own university.
The McGill Network and Communications Services has partnered with their opposites at Dalhousie and Toronto in bringing this project to fruition. Their efforts will save the rest of us a considerable amount of work and we will all have one less username and password to remember and enter. Hats off to our computer wizards!
